One of Australia's best-known chefs, Neil Perry has well and truly earned his laurels, helping to elevate Australian cuisine to previously unimagined heights. The more casual alternative to Rockpool, the Rockpool Bar & Grill is housed in a 1936 Emil Sodersteen–designed Art Deco skyscraper, and provides a delicious introduction to the bounty of produce Australia has to offer, from a cold bar featuring fresh-shucked Sydney oysters to free-range chicken and dry-aged beef cooked in a wood-fired rotisserie oven.

Good Food, Great Wine list, Beautiful Place
My photo doesn't do it justice, but this restaurant is beautiful, located in an art deco building. Chef Neil Perry's food is excellent. Not cheap, but I think it is worth it for a special night. The place has a great buzz. And be sure to ask for Michaël Engelmann, the head sommelier, who is fantastic. He spent five years previously at Gary Danko in San Francisco.
